Look At Me.........another brilliant gift by Karen Appleton

Something fabulous, a brilliant blue gift to brighten up your weekend. If you have been reading this blog for a long while you might remember the post I wrote about finding Karen Appleton, the artist who loves to paint gift wrapped packages? Someone who shares my gift wrap passion. I am still so amazed by her subject matter and incredible technique, it makes me shake my head that an artist could be so talented. Karen posted this week about her latest painting titled Look At Me which was selected for a Chicago area art gallery show and competition in November. Maybe if you live in the Chicago area you could go take a peek that evening. And if you didn't read my first post, you really do have to click here to see her oil paintings in all their gift wrapped glory.

  9. I missed the original! She is amazing! Thanks for featuring her again. I love her style and the way the packages are a little off center in the paintings.

  10. New to this artist, and now obsessed! Really beautiful!

  11. Couldn't you see a fabulous grouping of these on the wall? So beautiful. I can't look at a package without thinking of you now. What a lovely legend to have.
